Off He Goes
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Actually this guy tried to take-off several times but failed. When I left he was still trying. |
Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing consisting of a large number of interconnected and baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained by its suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside. Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometres, though flights of 1–2 hours and covering some tens of kilometres are more the norm. By skilful exploitation of sources of lift the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand metres. (From Wikipedia)

The sky has my eye.
Hello Eleu, a good PoV, making maximum use of the view, which gives us a great feeling of open space.
I think that he might need a steeper slope!
Eye catching colours.
Tfs, regards Jean.
